Hot off the press – exciting news! We are receiving a restorative justice grant from the Law Foundation of BC and Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General for our inaugural Restorative Neighbourhood – Hastings Sunrise.

This grant is part of the $3 million one-time funding announcement last June for restorative justice across BC by Minister Mike Farnworth. We will receive $50,000/year for three years starting in 2024.

 

Our team looks forward to continuing to work in partnership with Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House and Hastings Sunrise Community Policing Centre, and with the Restorative Collective Vancouver. We are grateful for the forward momentum this grant supports.

Join us in celebrating this wonderful news for Vancouver and all the organizations receiving much needed financial support for restorative justice. Read the government press release here.

“Empowering people to take accountability for their crimes allows them to address the underlying causes of harm,” said Niki Sharma, Attorney General.  “By investing in restorative justice programs that promote healing and reconciliation, we can help reduce the cycle of incarceration and build a more fair and equitable justice system for people and communities in B.C.”
